Follow the money

Obama and his money won. But where oh where did all that money come from? In September alone he raised over $150M - that's about $5M per day! Where did all that money come from? Single contributors? Let's see, at $2,500 per contributor that would be..let's see...carry the five...about 60,000 contributors, or 2,000 of them PER DAY contributing $2,500 each!

Open your books, Obama. Let's see where those big bucks came from. I'm willing to bet a lot of it came from sources in the Middle East. And with your "God DAMN America" church ties and affiliation with at least one known terrorist, I think your books would make for some interesting, if not scary, and perhaps even incriminating, reading.

Come on, Barack.

You can quote

-Pat Paulsen

You listening, Barack?

Don't Take Debate

I watched the Palin / Biden debate last night. The newcomer versus the old pro. It was unremarkable.

The crux of the biscuit is that hiring Obama to head up the US military (one of the bigger obligations of holding the office, and perhaps THE biggest responsibility in the world) - well, you might as well just grab someone off the street - chances are the person you choose will have as much insight into military leadership as does Barack Obama.

Face it, people. If you hire Obama, you just may be politically...retarded.

After the conventions

Getting right to the point, the only CHANGE Barack Obama will leave you with is nickels and dimes. Pennies. Yup, you won't have any DOLLARS left from your paycheck once he starts funding all his hare-brained schemes. Funny how more and more Mr. Obama is looking and sounding like the entrenched Washington bureaucrat, while McCain exhudes that feeling of exhiliaration, of anticipation that good things COULD (and probably WILL) happen on his watch. Mr. Obama has criticized McCain for first saying Obama is inexperienced, then choosing Palin for his running mate. She's the governor of the largest state in the Union! What does he have in his column? Community organizer?

Americans voted to give Bill Clinton four more years as President, even after discovering the truth about Monica Lewinsky. That affair cheapened and tainted the office of the President of the United States, but not as much as Obama would. Let's not make the same mistake twice.

Never in a million microseconds

Hey, I configured this thing to post my blog through the Atomizer thing. Where do we go from here?

Chicken or Egg

The League of American Wheelmen was founded in 1880 by bicycle enthusiasts. In an effort to improve riding conditions so they might better enjoy their newly discovered sport, more than 100,000 cyclists from across the United States joined the League to advocate for paved roads. The success of the League in its first advocacy efforts ultimately led to our national highway system.

Times have changed. Automobiles became and still are the reason for the immense growth of our highly sophisticated system of roads. Those still riding bicycles on our crowded city streets are taking their lives into their own hands. I can tolerate bicycle lanes. But on roads with no shoulders, many with only one lane in either direction, these bicycle enthusiasts have no right to impede traffic and cause harmful if not fatal traffic accidents. They pay little, if any, user fees to help local governments pay for the special treatment they receive. They are selfish. If they want to jeopardize their own lives, that is one thing. It is quite another to do so in a way that jeopardizes many others around them.

So what came first - the chicken or the egg? Was man built for the earth, or was the earth built for man? Because paved roads may have come into existence due to bicycle riders, does this mean that those who drive cars (and pay dearly for doing so) should be put into harm's way to accommodate the bicyclists' blatant disregard for human life? I don't feel it is right to possibly need to decide, while driving my car, between running into a bicyclist or into an oncoming motorized vehicle.

The Supreme Court and other things

Time is limited, so here we go. The Supreme Court recently rendered an opinion that Americans do indeed have the right to own and bear arms. What a no-brainer. Like what part of the Revolutionary War didn't you understand?

And Obama...I have not the time to expound at this moment. Suffice to say that he would be...a laughing stock. An international, how much more ridicule can one country take kind of laughing stock.

Get real.

Heads up, people.

I heard Laura Ingraham and Geraldo Rivera on the radio going at it one morning over illegal aliens...well, instead of fighting about it, we should either enforce the laws that are on the books, or repeal them and introduce new legislation. But - our track record with enforcement is the real issue here. Who is to say that the new laws would be enforced any better than the existing laws? No matter how we deal with it, it is going to be a phenomenally expensive and uphill battle.

But until new legislation is passed, I believe staunch enforcement of existing laws is the answer. The war in Iraq is taking an immense toll on this country in terms of lost lives and tax dollars. I think we should scale back our presence there (but not abandon the cause), and use that manpower and money to fight a battle that is much closer to home. Build that wall, guard those airports, and transport known illegals back to their country of origin. Though originally a nation of immigrants, our forefathers devised laws to ensure that our freedoms and national resources be available first and foremost to United States citizens. There is a REASON we refer to these people as "illegal" aliens. Their presence here is in violation of federal law. This is a great country, and simply giving that greatness away is unfathomable. It SHOULD be difficult to become a naturalized American. By even considering giving amnesty to lawbreakers we are taking the teeth out of any controls we have against unbridled immigration into this country. We have taken tolerance to a dangerous height in this country.

We have for far too long ignored the need to take action to keep America safe from the inherent dangers that illegal aliens pose. We have allowed them to do the work that many of us see as menial, working illegally "under the table" or for wages far below normal. They fill our emergency rooms and populate our prisons, receive welfare benefits and drive on our roads without being properly licensed, sell drugs, but the majority of us have remained silent. For that silence we are now paying a heavy price.

I want being an American to continue to mean something. I am a citizen of the greatest nation ever to be on this planet. I cannot rationalize, under any circumstances, the demeaning of our great country for the sake of expediency or any other reason. So - no more Mr. Nice Guy - Get a green card, or get lost.

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune

Obama, huh? Change, change change...what in the world is so bad? Are we not the greatest nation on the earth? What changes can an inexperienced, never-in-the-military child make? Will he put an end to hunger? No. Homelessness? No. Poverty? Wrong again. The changes he will make (and he WILL make them) are those that will weaken this country by putting an even bigger government in place, a dumbing-down of monumental proportions. We The People are too stupid and too out of touch to make our own decisions. Isn't that right, Mr. Obama?

I watched one of my favorite entertainers tonight, one Mr. Stevie Wonder, receive a NAACP award. He went up onstage and seized the opportunity to extoll the virtues of Barack Obama, encouraging all those listening to vote for him. Please keep in mind that Mr. Wonder is a musical genius, not a political one. I thought it sad to hear Mr. Wonder give such high praise to a man who would render moot all of the sacrifices our men in uniform have made in the Middle East so that Mr. Wonder and others like himself can continue to enjoy the freedoms and the rights that all of us too often take for granted.

Go away, Barack, go away.

More about immigration

My wife had to go through all the hoops that the US Government normally puts immigrants through in order to obtain her US citizenship.. The multiple trips to the INS office, the mountains of forms and proof of income, and on and on ad nauseum.

Now there is talk of giving citizenship to many immigrants who are here illegally, who have broken the law by not going through the hoops...this makes an absolute mockery of anyone who has done it by the book. It invites many more people to come here illegally and stay here long enough to be declared honorary citizens, or whatever tag will be given them. This is a travesty.

Don't vote for anyone who espouses amnesty or any other form of coddling of these outlaws. And give our law enforcement guys some leeway in their enforcement efforts.
